Hydroxyapatite (and) Capryloyl Salicylic Acid


MicroX LHA is a cosmetic active for skin renewal, anti-wrinkle, anti-aging, and anti-acne. It delivers lipophilic hydroxy acid, providing high impact on skin appearance and smoothness through cell-by-cell exfoliation and stimulation of new cells in the basal layer.

MicroX LHA is delivered inside microscopic calcium particles that penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. The skin’s natural pH bio-erodes the material, releasing LHA active and calcium nutrients.

White Powder

OTC Acne:
1% MicroX LHA (0.4% LHA) in combination with approved OTC APIs has had demonstrated efficacy in numerous l’Oreal clinical studies.

Non-OTC Acne:
0.8% MicroX LHA (0.3% LHA) together with other exfoliants clinically effective in published studies.

3-5% MicroX LHA (2% LHA) with no other actives clinically effective in published studies.

3-4% achieves similar performance to retinoids.

pH Guidelines
MicroX LHA powder can be dispersed in any medium. It should not be exposed to pH less than 5.5. If formulating low pH formulas, disperse the MicroX powder into the oil phase where it is not exposed to low pH.

Dispersing in water phase is facilitated by first dispersing the MicroX powder in glycerin or diols.

MicroX LHA is a targeted, time-released delivery system of lipo-hydroxy acid. LHA is a lipophilic (oil-loving) form of hydroxy acid with potent skin renewal activity. Since it is lipophilic, it partitions into sebaceous areas of the skin where it targets corneocyte desquamation. Numerous studies show that LHA provides a non-irritating, natural exfoliation which reduces the skin’s older dead layer and increases new cell formation at the skin’s basal layer.

LHA exfoliation closely mimics our inherent physiological skin renewal.

By delivering LHA in calcium microparticles, we are able to release LHA into deeper layers of the skin. The pH within the stratum corneum degrades the calcium microparticle releasing LHA deeper in the epidermis for a continuous, long-lasting anti-aging effect. The calcium ion is also released, feeding important cell signaling processes involved in skin repair. This topical application of calcium supports skin barrier health.
